Ice age

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/8447023.stm - As you can see, Britain has entered into a new ice age. (Hi-res photo here). It's no surprise that the Mail and Express have gone hell for leather to try to convince their gullable readership that because it's snowed in the windertime in Britain, well, that just means that global warming is obviously just made up, right?

Which is great, init?

Believing that global warming/climate change is all either made up or natural and man-kind has no infulence over it is so much easier than not. It means that I don't have to bother recycling. I can keep my central heating on all the time and the only consequences is a stupidly high utility bill. I can make loads of unnessasry trips in my car when public transport would have suficed. (Again, there's the issue of paying for the petrol, but you can't take away my right to whine about how expensive it all is!) In fact, I just don't have to care about the environment at all if I simply believe that I have no influence over it.

It's great! I'm going to sleep soundly tonight knowning that I totally wont have fucked things up for my kids.
